When James told me he wanted a Bug Party, I didn’t find what I was looking for. (There are tons of ladybug ideas – everything from appetizers to cakes to party favors!) So I created my own bug party ideas. James and his friends seemed to enjoy them, so I thought I’d share. I hope you enjoy them!
- Chocolate chips or Wilton candy melts
- Wax paper
- Zippered sandwich bag
- Cookie sheet
- Optional: Wilton Edible Eyes
- Print the chocolate bugs template (below).
- Place it on a hard surface (kitchen table) and cover it with a piece of wax paper.
- Warm the chocolate or candy melts as directed on the package.
- Pour into a zippered bag & seal. Then snip the corner of the bag to create a tiny whole.
- Trace each image on template with your chocolate ‘pen’.
- If you are going to add edible eyes to the bugs, now’s the time.
- Put the cookie sheet in the fridge for at least an hour.
- Gently peel the bugs from the wax paper.
- Use as desired.
Edible Ant Hill:
- Graham Crackers
- Instant pudding
- Milk (for the pudding)
- Chocolate Sprinkles
- Cups or Wilton treat pops
- Make pudding as directed on the package.
- Crush graham crackers into fairly small pieces.
- In a cup, layer pudding, graham crackers, sprinkles. Repeat.
**Note: I taped little magnifying glasses to the outside of the cup so they’d look cuter. That’s not necessary.
- 2 packets Kool-Aid – any flavor
- 8 cups of water
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 – 46oz can of pineapple juice
- 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1 liter ginger ale
- Fill a 1 gallon container with 2 quarts (8 cups) of water.
- Add Kool-Aid and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
- Add pineapple juice and lemonade concentrate. Stir well.
- Before serving, add ginger ale.
**Note: If you wanted to, you could freeze plastic bugs in ice cubes and throw those in your gallon pitcher.
Which one is your favorite?
